Kurzbeschreibung

An overview of nanotechnology and its potential
The field of nanotechnology is undergoing rapid developments onmany fronts. This reference provides a comprehensive review ofvarious nanotechnologies with a view to their biomedicalapplications. With chapters contributed by distinguished scientistsfrom diverse disciplines, Biomedical Applications ofNanotechnology:
* Reviews recent advances in the designing of variousnanotechnologies based on nucleic acids, polymers, biomaterials,and metals
* Discusses biomedical nanotechnology in areas such as drug andgene delivery
* Covers advanced aspects of imaging and diagnostics
* Includes a chapter on the issue of nanotoxicology
Complete with figures and tables, this is a practical, hands-onreference book for researchers in pharmaceutical and biotechindustries, biomedical engineers, pharmaceutical scientists,pharmacologists, and materials scientists as well as for thepolicymakers who need to understand the potential ofnanotechnology. It is also an excellent resource book forgraduate-level students in pharmaceutical sciences, biomedicalengineering, and other fields in which nanotechnology is playing anincreasingly important role.
